Don Bank Museum Hire

Don Bank is a remarkable mid-19th century timber slab cottage that survives with its garden amidst North Sydney’s bustle and high-rise office buildings. Now on the NSW State Heritage Register, it was saved from the bulldozer by community support and opened as a museum in 1981.
